CCCA and VINS to present “Raptor Encounter”

The Cavendish Community and Conservation Association will present the first of its 2013 Walk and Talk Series events on Friday, Jan. 11 from 6:30-7:30 p.m. at the Cavendish Town Elementary School. The Vermont Institute of Natural Sciences (VINS) will present "Raptor Encounter".  Come meet live ambassador raptors from VINS and learn about their winter habits, predator-prey relationships and the interdependence of the systems that support life. This first-hand encounter enables participants to understand the defining characteristics that make a bird a raptor and to observe their adaptations for life as a predator on the wing. Touchable artifacts and hands-on materials round out this special event.

Please make plans to attend now. For more information, please contact Robin Timko at 802-226-7736.
